    Progress on Ap Bac ...
    Scenario Image:

    Strategic Map:

    Topo Map compared to CM screenshot:

     
    Working title for the scenario is 'A miserable damn performance', which was Lieutenant Colonel John Paul Vann's (7 ARVN Division US advisor) judgement on the battle.
    Overall the scenario is a whopper, two and half hours long, the map is 2000m x 3008m (I've basically half-scaled the map dimensions to fit it all in); however, I've worked hard to get the troop numbers pretty close to the actual thing.

    Guess again mate - there are heaps of threads on this in the SF-2 board.  Bottom line is that you should be able to upgrade at the discounted rate even though yours is the Paradox version.  Open up a ticket with the helpdesk and provide them as much info as you can about the version of SF1 that you own.

    Another good segment - I liked the Stug engagement which was well-composed.  Some gutsy moves with the half-tracks - I never seem to get off so lightly!

    Combatintman got a reaction from sburke in [AI] How do I ensure an explosion will happen at an exact spot?   
    I usually find that wherever my troops stop for a couple of minutes explosions seem to find them … have you tried that? 😁

    CMFB doesn't have much user-made content for sure but the campaigns and scenarios that come bundled with the game in my opinion are superb.

    I enjoyed it - about the right length - no long bits where the player is plotting endless moves and me wanting to rotate the screen to see what is going on etc.  Good and succinct description of what was going on and some good action shots.  Have a like mate.

    Started some CM vids for AARs/DARs....
    'Fortress Grosshau' is the subject of the first series.  Excuse my weak graphics card and awkward narrative delivery. I think I'm going to start writing scripts before recording narration. Score is original music (I'm a professional musician among other things.)  Try to watch in full screen for the full cinematic effect.
    All inspiration comes from watching vids by Usually Hapless, Josey Wales, Ithikial and Double.  You guys set the bar!

    That's nothing … I've painted my Mother-in-Law's front room, the wife and my bedroom, the big spare bedroom, small spare bedroom, the front room, the downstairs hall, the utility room, the downstairs khazi, the kitchen, the fitted shelves for two wardrobes, a garden shed and a heap of bookshelves this year alone.

    I seem to recall that both of my scenarios had reasonable reviews for H2H balance.  To Verdenne and Victory is a battalion (ish) on each side and a big map or if you want something Coy-sized try Probing around Poteau.

    And finally from the extraction LZ at Son Tay 40 minutes after Callsign Blueboy's deliberate crash landing into the compound …

    Not even close to @Bud Backer's comic artistry I know, but I hope you like it.

    Sh1t the bed mate … that's an area about four times larger than I would have gone for if I'd made that map. Good luck with that tree placement 😉
